Sabor - N. Lamar (AUS)

OK, I went back to this hole in the wall Sabor for the second time last night, relatively sober. Four of us brought in 2 6 paks, and the waitress promptly took them and put them in a bucket of ice, along with a bowl of sliced limes.

We had the following 4 entrees:

?Something? de Molcajete - excellent presentation...a big molcajete filled with strips of grilled beef, cactus, green onions, and grilled cheese (some type of Oaxacan or asadero cheese...flat slices that were grilled/carmelized on the outside). In the bottom of the molcajete, there was a very good red salsa crudo. Sublime. Came with a side of rice/beans and salad fixings. All for an incredible $8.99 or something ridiculous like that.

Seafood Fajitas - fish (tilapia), shrimp, Krab, and octupus on a sizzling plate. All of the seafood was fresh tasting, the only disappointment being the Krab (i'd rather not have fake crab at all). $10.99 for one. The 2 person plate of this that runs $19.99 is a much better presentation, as it has the elevated plate with a fire underneath.

Chile Relleno - to much beef, uninteresting to me, but very different than any that I've had before. Wouldn't order again. 8 bucks or so.

Conchinita Pibil - very tender pieces of pork that are cooked in bananna leaf. Wasn't quite as good as the last time that I had it (when it was absolutely excellent), but tender and all nonetheless. I couldn't really taste the bananna leaf this time. $9

I have to go back - there are several other items on the menu that I want to order, and several items that I have no idea what they are. The waitress knew very little english, so I'll need a translator to go with me next time.

The whole bill was $40. Plus the two six paks that we brought in. Granted, it was Monday, but there was only one other table in the restaurant that was occupied. Please go if you get the chance.
